100 songs from 2008!

I started this tradition last year, though someone else started it first a couple years ago and continues it. It’s a neat way to sum up a year of music: 100 great songs by 100 different artists. If you’re a regular listener you’ve probably already heard almost all of them but this is a chance to own their souls as it is in torrent form. So go grab it grab it.
